In English, we are then going to write instructions on how to make a compass.


On the 14th November it is Diwali.

Watch these videos to learn about Diwali.


On Jit5, make a poster, answering the questions:

What does Diwali mean?

Who celebrates Diwali?

What sorts of things do people do during Diwali?

Can you think of any similar things you do at a special time of year?



Now watch the story of Rama and Sita

Make two puppets - colour them in or make your own. You could stick them to a pencil or a stick and retell the story.


Now retell the story by writing it - use these pictures to help you.

Colour one of these poppy in different shades of red. Or you could collage (cut small bits of paper and stick them on) with different coloured red and pink paper. Then on top of your colouring, write down all the key words you found in the videos, like HOPE, NEVER FORGET, KINDNESS.

Cut the poppy out and display it somewhere.
